Mercer County, Take Steps to Find Cures
Our Take Steps walks offer a wonderful day for family, friends and the community to celebrate all of the efforts that have been put forth in raising funds towards our mission. Our walk events are filled with live music, food, kids’ entertainment, educational materials, and, of course, wonderful exposure for our corporate partners.
Take Steps for Crohn’s & colitis is a family friendly community walk dedicated to raising awareness and mission-critical funds for cures for digestive diseases. In the past five years alone, we succeeded in bringing together over 100,000 people and raised close to $40 million to help further CCFA’s mission.
80 cents of every dollar raised goes towards breakthrough research, public and professional education, and patient support services in communities across the nation.
Register today. Join thousands of others in the fight against digestive diseases.
NEW PATIENTS often find forming a team is a helpful way to make talking about their disease to their family/social circles less overwhelming and isolating.
PATIENTS THAT HAVE BEEN MANAGING THEIR DISEASE over the years find forming a team and participating is a great platform for their loved ones, who often times feel unable to help during difficult flares or disease management, to roll their sleeves up and spread the word in the community, fundraise in their honor, and walk beside one another in a truly rewarding way!
The team's "captain" will work hand in hand with the local Walk Manager every step of the way from setting up the team's fundraising page, setting a fundraising goal, to coming up with email templates and personalized fundraising plans.
